The Subcommittee will hear testimony from members of the Surface Transportation Board, Amtrak, Metra, the American Public Transportation Association, the Association of American Railroads, and the Cato Institute. The STB is a bipartisan, independent agency with jurisdiction over the economic regulation of railroads.

Congress last reauthorized the STB in the Surface Transportation Board Reauthorization Act of 2015 through Fiscal Year 2020."
